CHM2211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Notes were well organized/hee did a good job lecturing. Included biological applications of orgo which I thought was really cool. The tests required some thinking, nothing that you'd be unprepared if you went to class and studied (ill admit there was too much biochem on the last test...) Went to class 75% of the time. Study edge helps.

CHM2211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I wouldn't recommend taking this class unless you are prepared to memorize his notes word for word. He will put the most obscure thing he barely mentioned in class and it will be a large portion of your exam. Be prepared to attend all office hours and read your book religiously. This is the only way to even pass the class, forget about a good grade

CHM 2211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Portmess is the best professor I've had at UF. Orgo is NOT easy by any means...work hard and GO TO OFFICE HOURS. He explains things very well, and if you apply yourself, he is very willing to help you. He even knew my name by the end of the course.

His amount of knowledge is STUNNING. Expect to study, as echoed by all other students. But, this is college people, and more importantly, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY. It aint easy for a reason!

Chm2211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. J is an incredibly awesome person. Best professor I have had so far at UF. He's always willing to go the extra mile to help his students. He actually makes Orgo fun and addictive! Expect to study a lot! Orgo is definetly not a walk in the park, doesn't matter who you take. Also, I did not have him for Orgo1 and I did fine!
